‘Provides a platform for many talented amateur musicians and verse speakers of all ages and abilities. It gives the stimulus of preparing for a public occasion and an opportunity to listen and learn from the performances of others. As important is the constructive criticism, help and advice given by experienced adjudicators, which helps the competitors improve their respective skills. The Festival is held in March each year. In Festival week classes run from 9.30am to 9.30pm, with morning, afternoon and evening sessions ... A gala concert takes place at the end of the week, on the Saturday at 7pm, celebrating the highlights of the week’s performances.‘

‘Club nights are usually once a month from October to June on the first Wednesday (but sometimes Thursday) of the month starting at 7.30pm. The atmosphere is very relaxed and many visitors and performers have commented it's one of the friendliest folk clubs around. We try to keep to the old traditions of folk clubs and always encourage floor singers of whatever level of experience.’ Directions from the West: ‘The easiest way is to go across the King Harry Ferry and Philleigh is a couple of miles east of the river. Be warned - check ferry times. You may well be able to get to Philleigh by ferry but you will have to drive round by Truro at the end of the evening. N.B. Public transport is a no-no!!!’ ALERT Website unobtainable at Review; cited instead the Facebook Page.

All backgrounds are catered for; we offer a friendly and very sociable atmosphere and many life long friendships are made.‘

‘Established in January 2001, as part of a major new initiative to boost singing in Cornish Primary Schools ... The choir stems from a partnership between Truro Cathedral and the Cornwall Music Service Department and comprises children from all over Cornwall. The project came about following a radical decision to use the musical resources of the Cathedral, in the form of its choristers, to help bring singing back into the community’s primary schools. The Junior Choir was then set up to give those youngsters wanting to take their singing further a vehicle to enable them to do so.‘

‘Cornwall’s premier string orchestra ...  Apart from playing for enjoyment, the orchestra raises money for charity by giving a series of concerts of classical music every year ... The kind of player we are looking for will be roughly of Grade 8 standard or have comparable orchestral experience. We do not audition in the formal sense, but ask any prospective member to come along to a couple of rehearsals to play next to the section leader who can then make a decision.’

'Truro Cathedral is truly a centre of musical excellence. We have developed one of the best choirs in the country, far better than could be expected from a "small" Cathedral and the envy of some of the more famous foundations. Our reputation for excellence is further enhanced by the legendary quality of our Father Willis organ, which often attracts world-class recitalists who would not otherwise visit Cornwall. As a result, congregations and concertgoers in Truro can enjoy the very best in Cathedral music ... A varied concerts and events programme by carefully selected "outside" groups, means that we are one of the most interesting and rewarding music venues in Cornwall.'
